The possibilities of left-arm fast bowlers getting rid of the left-handed batters are more. Remember the epic rivalry between Zaheer Khan and Graeme Smith? The saga of Zaheer Khan dismissing Graeme Smith continued time and time again. In fact, it got even better, especially when both these players locked horns with each other.
Meanwhile, the ongoing third Test match between Pakistan and Australia witnessed one such spectacular rivalry between David Warner and Shaheen Afridi. During the first innings of the third Test, Shaheen Afridi trapped Warner for a leg before the wicket. The dangerous Warner departed after scoring only 7 runs.
During the second innings, both these players lit up the stadium by engaging in light banter. When Afridi bowled a short-pitched delivery, Warner defended it in the first place and then screamed at his partner, Usman Khawaja to get back to non-striker’s end. At that time, Shaheen Afridi went up to Warner as both players looked at each other and smiled.

Meanwhile, the left-arm fast bowler Shaheen Afridi got rid of David Warner once again. The incident happened during the first ball of the 29th over when Shaheen Afridi bowled an unplayable delivery to Warner and the latter thought of defending it.
However, he missed the ball completely as the ball went on to shatter his stumps. Warner who departed cheaply in the first innings ensured to score a half-century in the second innings. He departed for 51 runs including 5 fours and a six.
